    Sounds like the rantings of a paranoid schizophrenic.

    Wow that is a crazy rant. I wonder what that guy says about gasoline?
    Of course, nothing.

    Thankfully I haven't seen the flyer in the mid peninsula.

    That sheet is hilarious. Y'all must have hit some kind of critical mass in California for a guy to print off flyers and start putting them on cars. There are a lot of Tesla's in Austin but you'd be wasting your time wandering around looking for one.

    "Tesla 'Satisfaction' survey authored by it's own investors/fanboys". They have us there. Most Tesla drivers i know own stock and are just as crazy about the car as i am. Still, that's correlation, not causation.

    Yes, it's amazing the things you could say about gasoline. "A cup of gaoloine has the same power as a stick of dynamite. An SUV is driving around with the equivalent explosive power of over 300 sticks of dynamite!"

    I'll be sure to turn off my seat vibrator. That will help with the itching. Thanks for the tip!

    I like the vibrating seats. Part of the 'Diane Feinstein' special addition package that was paid for by the Afgan administration (secretly funded by Google).:biggrin:

    I wonder who could be behind this. Some of my guesses:

    1. John Petersen
    2. Doug Kass
    3. Chris Christie
    4. Broder
    5. montgom626/Vince Megna
    6. Jim Appleton

    No need. It's so over the top that it does sound like the rantings of a lunatic. I like the part about "Give the car back!" Well, at least it goes on to say "Demand a refund!", but that's only after you've given it back. It should say "Give it to me!" at the end. Then it would have been worth the read for a good laugh.

    Well, NO BODY CAN FIX STUPIDs or for that matter an IDIOT like the author of this flyer.

    May be the author should get in touch with O'Reilly at Fox, he probably knows a cure, something or somebody fixed him.

    OMG. So I read the whole thing on my phone, no small effort there. Link was from Business Insider/Yahoo finance, really good comments posted to the article.
    I just want to point out that we will need an original for the EV/Tesla history museum. So if you are one of the lucky recipients, hold on to it, and make a copy or two. Send me one, I'll put it in the shrine :smile: I have going. ML

    Wait ...."Tesla buys magazine articles, 'reviews' & TV shows for which it pays PR writers to only write good things about Tesla"

    Motor trend was bought? what about FOX for the last few years. hmm suspicious

    My butt is itchy, gotta do some drugs I guess and get rid of some local transient tweaker pedestrians.

    at least this guy did his homework
    anyone want my VAMPIRE POWERED car

    we could make shirts !

    and ABVA, when an old hippie Deadhead (me) sees the term "Dead Beat", the possible multiple meanings make his head start spinning. Shrine used to be a bulletin board in my shop, now it's covered w random EV stuff.

    That was funny! However, I think he's off his meds anyway.
